INSOMNIUM Winter’s Gate

It seems to me that Finnish defenders of melodic death metal faith Insomnium only get better with the passing of time: their 2014’s album Shadows of the Dying Sun saw them at their most brutal and catchy simultaneously, upping the ante on all departments. Now the time has come for even more ambitious move, so…

CIRITH UNGOL Paradise Lost

Here we have one of the most hotly anticipated re-releases in the realm of true metal world for decades, and I am not exaggerating this. Cirith Ungol is cult metal bend that was active in mainly in eighties but their swansong album entitled Paradise Lost was released in 1991 in time of great turmoil for…

ASPHYX Incoming Death

One of the originators of death doom subgenre, mighty Dutch band Asphyx, is back with their 9th studio album entitled Incoming Death to show that they have not reunited to rest on laurels, but rather that they have still some fire under their collective asses which they are willing to share with the world. Sad…

HEAVEN SHALL BURN Wanderer

German melodic death metalcore monsters Heaven Shall Burn are back with their 8th studio album entitled Wanderer which simply continues their reign in their field, as simple as that.

The interview was done with Johan Niemann, one of the brothers who marked several records of Therion. Later, it turned out, that Gothic Kabbalah was their…

PRIMAL FEAR In Metal We Trust

Since I follow the band from the very beginning, from their very first debut record, it was a nice opportunity to have one interview finally. Primal Fear’s brand new album Rulebreaker has been already there for some time and the band has done already European tour. I met with the guys during their tour and…

SATYRICON Nemesis Divina (20 years later)

As a matter of fact Nemesis Divina is one of the most important albums when it comes to black metal. It was very important record at that time for Satyricon, but also Nemesis Divina was a big step forward for the entire genre. Perhaps 1996 and 1997 were the breaking point, a period when black…

RUNNING WILD Warmongers

Running Wild has definitely make a comeback with their latest issue. Rapid Foray sounds very much like their best efforts from late 80s or 90s.
